It’s Saturday and that means Jen has another fabulous sketch to play along with. It also mean another week has flown by and I can’t believe May is almost over. This weekend is one of the first that we haven’t had a Saturday baseball game. Instead we are headed out to have photos taken by one of my college sorority sisters. She’s starting her own photography business here in the Chicagoland area and I’ve been impressed with what I’ve seen so we booked a mini session. You can find her blog here.
For the sketch today I pulled out the last of one of my favorite Razzleberry Lemonade designer series paper patterns. I then layered it with a 2nd pattern with Rich Razzleberry Polka dots. I tied on a piece of 1 1/4″ striped ribbon. The main image panel is Whisper White and Pumpkin Pie. The sentiment is from All Holidays. I wanted to dress it up a bit and I’ve seen a lot of button trees lately so I used Trendy Trees and a Kiwi Kiss Corduroy button I had left over from the summer mini a year ago. I then added Beautiful Wings butterflies, leaves from Bird on a Branch punch and Itty Bitty flowers.
I have to say I am not thrilled with my card. It is what it is and I played around with it for close to 40 minutes trying to make it perfect. My Mojo is missing this week. Maybe it’s the stress of waiting to see who won the Artisan Award. Maybe it’s the rainy weather and my allergies acting up. I hope it comes back next week.
